Description: In the Hellenistic world, writings were read aloud, heard and remembered. But modern exegesis assumes a silent text. The disjuncture between ancient and modern approaches to literature, argue Margaret Lee and Brandon Scott, obscures the beauty and meaning in writings such as the New Testament. Through a close analysis of writings from the four gospels, Paul, and Q, they advance a theory of sound analysis that will enable modern readers to hear the New Testament afresh.
